STEP BY STEP GUIDE
  • 2
  • Schedule a Hearing One of the first things you
    should do after you are released from custody is
    scheduled your DMV hearing. You only have 10 days
    from the date of your arrest to make your
    appointment, which is your only opportunity to
    challenge the suspension of your license.
  • 1.
  • Booking and Custody After your arrest, the
    officer will confiscate your license and take you
    to the station. You may be asked to submit to
    another chemical test to determine your BAC, and
    you will be fingerprinted and a booking
    photograph will be taken. You will likely be
    taken into custody at the local jail, and you
    could be released on your own recognizance or you
    may have to post bail.

3. Retain an Attorney The laws and proceedings
for a drunk driving arrest can be complex, but
the assistance of an experienced attorney will
provide your case with the best chance to achieve
a successful verdict. Your lawyer can thoroughly
examine your charges and the circumstances that
led to your arrest to determine if your rights
were violated in any way and build a powerful
defense against the prosecutions charges.
4. DMV Hearing At your hearing, you have the
opportunity to present evidence of your own and
subpoena witnesses, including the arresting
officer. Your attorney can advocate for your
license and drive privileges on your behalf, and
the DMV will then rule on whether or not the
officer had reasonable cause to take your
license.

  • 6.
  • Plea Bargains and Pretrial Motions After
    arraignment your attorney can discuss the case
    with the District Attorney and possibly negotiate
    a plea bargain that is beneficial for you. If a
    plea bargain is not reached, your lawyer can file
    motions to suppress evidence. At the suppression
    hearing, you can fight to have certain parts or
    all of the prosecutions evidence thrown out if
    your rights were violated.

5. Arraignment Your arraignment is the first
court hearing, when you are formally charged with
driving while intoxicated. It is at this hearing
that you will enter your plea of guilty, no
contest, or not guilty, when you decide whether
you will accept the charges or fight the
allegations brought against you. By pleading no
contest or guilty, your sentence will be
immediately imposed by the judge. If you plead
not guilty, the judge will set a future court
date when your case will be tried by a jury and
judge.

8. Sentencing The court will impose your
sentence after reaching a plea bargain or after
you are convicted. The penalties will differ
based on the circumstances of your case, but
could include fines, jail time, community
service, and alcohol education.
7. Trial Your case will be tried by a judge and
jury, and the prosection and your lawyer will
present evidence, their arguments, and
cross-examine any witnesses. The jury will then
decide whether or not you are guilty of driving
under the influence.
